The DLPC410 is a digital controller that supports five DMD options: DLP650LNIR, DLP7000, DLP7000UV, DLP9500, and DLP9500UV. It is the convenient,
high-speed data and control interface between the application electronics and the DMD. The DLPC410
provides DMD Mirror Clocking Pulses (Resets) and timing information to the DLPA200 DMD Micromirror
Driver. The device is configured with firmware stored in the DLPR410 PROM.
This family of chipsets enables pixel data rates up to 48 Gigabits per second (Gbps) with
the option for single, dual, quad, and global Resets. In addition, random row addressing and LOAD4
capabilities are offered. Often the family of chips is used when designing UV and NIR systems such
as direct imaging lithography, 3D printing, and laser marking systems that need fast throughput and
pixel accurate control.
In DLP-based electronics solutions, image data is 100% digital from the DLPC410 input
port to the projected image. The image stays in digital form and is never converted into an analog
signal. The DLPC410 processes the digital input image and converts the data into a format needed by
the image on the DMD. The DMD then steers the light using binary pulse-width modulation (PWM) for
each pixel mirror.
The DLPC410 is the DMD digital controller that controls the DLP650LNIR, DLP7000,
DLP7000UV, DLP9500, and DLP9500UV DMDs (see Functional Block Diagram,
Functional Block Diagram, and
Functional Block Diagram). The DLPC410
provides developers easy access to the DMD as well as high speed, independent micromirror control.
See the list of required chipset components for each DMD solution in Device Configurations table:
Reliable function and operation of the DLPC410 requires that it be used in
conjunction with the other components of the chipset in DLPC410 Device Configurations table. For more information on the chipset
components, see the data sheets in Related Documentation.
